Nursing students volunteer at free medical clinic in Emporia
Several VCU School of Nursing seniors and a faculty member were among a VCU group that volunteered recently at a two-day Remote Area Medical (RAM) outreach event held in Emporia, Virginia. RAM is an organization that helps coordinate free health care events throughout the country, providing patients with the option to be seen by multiple medical, dental and vision care providers.
School of Nursing volunteers helped with triage, as well as intake for school and sports physicals. Overall, volunteers provided $414,643 worth of free medical, dental and vision services to 740 patients.
Led by Juliane Milburn, Ph.D., RN, clinical assistant professor, the nursing students who participated include Paige Lawson, Emily Haden and Faith Kunkel.
